Rip TornOscar nominated actor Rip Torn has been arrested after breaking into a bank which he thought was his own home.

The 78 year old actor, known for his roles in Men In Black and 30 Rock was found by police wielding a loaded revolver in a “highly intoxicated” state after forcing entry via the bank’s back window.

Makes you wonder what kind of security the bank had if a pissed septuagenarian can decide to stroll in whenever they feel like it.

Torn was charged with carrying a pistol without a permit, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, first-degree burglary, first-degree criminal trespass and third-degree criminal mischief.

The troubled star whose work spans six decades won an Emmy for The Larry Sanders Show in 1992 and was nominated for an Oscar for Cross Creek in 1983.

It’s the latest in a string of alcohol related incidents which has seen him arrested for drink driving in 2008 and an arrest for crashing his car into a taxi whilst apparently drunk in 2004.

StumbleUpon It!
